How much maintenance do terrariums require?
Very little! Terrariums are designed to survive with just a little care. A good spot with a mix of indirect light and shade plus a very small amount of water every few days does the trick. Some plants used in terrariums may require some pruning from time to time.
Where is the best place to keep my terrarium?
Your terrarium should be somewhere that gets a little light but not too much. Obviously, it should be somewhere you can enjoy too.
What do you put in your terrariums?
Lots! We've spent a lot of time trialling what works and what doesn't, we favour pot belly figs, hardy indoor plants, ferns and a variety of ground cover. We strive to provide terrariums that require minimal maintenance and have a long life span.
When appropriate, we also use a selection of miniature people, animals and landscapes. We're happy to create bespoke terrariums to suit a special occasion or request. Just ask!
How much does a custom terrarium cost?
That depends. The cost of the terrarium will come down to the glass and plant selection. This can vary widely depending on the size and quality of the glass. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss having a custom terrarium made to suit a budget.
The terrarium I want is sold out! Can you make me one the same?
Mostly yes... There are some terrariums that were sadly one off creations. No two terrariums are exactly the same, of course. Most can be replicated though, get in touch and ask us. We're very happy to chat!
I'm buying a terrarium as a gift, but I can't choose one! Do you do vouchers?
We do! Click right here
and you'll see. Vouchers are available from $50. We can send a digital voucher to the recipient, or we can send them a printed voucher in the mail - just specify at checkout which you'd prefer.
We think terrariums are a lovely and unique gift idea, they can be created to suit any budget or style.
Where do you deliver?
Terrariums are quite fragile and as such, delivery can only be made within Melbourne and Sydney CBD via a courier service for now. Apologies to anyone further afield.
Can I pick up my terrarium if i'm in Melbourne?
Sure thing! If you're nearby and it suits, you're welcome to pick up your terrarium. Bosky is based north of Melbourne CBD.
We also have a number of stockists in and around Melbourne, check out the stockists page
to see if there's one close to you.
Do you supply terrariums for weddings and events?
Absolutely. Bespoke terrariums are an excellent idea for your event. We love to create eye catching table centrepieces, perfect for weddings or events. Also, adding a little figurine or special animal character can be a great addition to accentuate and personalise so please let us know if there's something special you'd like to see in your terrarium(s).
Get in touch to organise exactly what you're after.
Who do you lease terrariums to?
We lease terrariums to a wide variety of homes and businesses - cafe's, retail stores, offices, studios and hotels, to name a few.
We rotate the terrariums on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, meaning there's always something new to look at and also minimal maintenance and responsibility! Check out the leasing page
for more information.
